Some people don't realize when they have caused bodily harm in a car accident that you certainly will have to pay for the medical bills, but, if the injuries are serious such as: back or head injuries, broken limbs (and the person will be off work for a long period of time and perhaps have nerve damage to that limb) etc., then you are basically being sued for further medical bills that may come up in the future. When people have a trauma to their body in a car accident they just don't know which way the injuries could swing in the future and it could cause huge problems as far as going out and making a living for themselves and also one huge load of medical bills. This usually covers other surgeries in the future, therapy, loss of wages, etc. Marcy
